After 33 years, Pastor Randy Newton is retiring.  We are searching for someone to take his place who can shepherd LRBC into the future.  If you are interested in this leadership opportunity, we are engaging with our conference's search system, the Converge Pastor Placement Process (P3).   Register with P3 to create your profile and see if our ministry goals are aligned.

If you have a specific question that cannot be answered from our P3 profile, please use this contact form to reach the executive members of our search committee.

...the Bible is the inspired and the only infallible and authoritative written Word of God

...there is one God, eternally existent in three persons; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power.  After this comes the eternal state where God makes all things new. the blessed hope - the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming.

...the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.

...the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides answers to human need through believing prayer. the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.

...the gifts of the Holy Spirit, according to Rom. 12, 1 Cor. 12, Eph. 4 are given to believers for the purpose of ministry in the Church. the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting loss.
